It seems like the marketing plan for The Hunger Games is a little more Capital and a little less Katniss Everdeen. For example, the fighter from District 12 would never want her own nail polish line.
And now it’s come out that the girl on fire will have her own Barbie Doll. Mattel is creating the Katniss Everdeen Barbie Doll set to come out this April. Though no photos have been released yet, the company released a statement saying,
“With this Barbie Hunger Games Doll you can style Barbie just like Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games movie! This doll’s outfit is made to replicate the very same one worn by the feature character in the movie, and it measures around 12-inches tall! Ages 6 and up.”
So if you fall into the six and up category, you can have your very own Katniss doll for $27.99! Katniss would probably cringe at the thought, but we’re eating this Hunger Games frenzy up!
